Complex Operational and Organizational Problems

SELECTED PROJECT DESCRIPTIONS

Dr. Dean S. Hartley III

This page provides access to the description of 74 projects. There are four different ways of accessing the project descriptions:  keyword shortcuts, a visual map, a list of projects by clients, and a list of projects by contractual partners.

The keyword shortcuts are the same shortcuts provided on the Hartley Consulting home page.  The shortcuts are listed down the left side of the page and contain important topics that are found in operations research projects.  The keywords are grouped into four categories:  operations research / management science (ORMS) techniques, computer issues, military issues, and other keywords.  Each keyword leads to a page containing links to all of the projects that involve that particular keyword.

The visual map provides indications about the general relationships of the projects.  Each of the colored boxes represents a project (or, in one case, a web page within the project).  These boxes have hot spots that provide a direct link to the web page. Closely related projects are near each other in the map. In addition, a color code allows for the identification of the topic content of the project.

As the map below shows, some of the pages are extensively cross-connected. The map is provided to reduce the impact of the complexity. When you mouse over the pages (rectangles) in the figure below, you will see the ones that permit direct links to the named pages. This page is the "Projects" page and, naturally, doesn't need a link.

The client list, below the map, provides the dates and names of projects for each client, with direct links to the appropriate web page.  All of the projects are contained in this list.

The contractual partners list, at the bottom of the page, provides the dates and names of those projects that were either supported by a company acting as a subcontractor to my organization or for whom I worked as a subcontractor on the project.  Only some of the projects are on this list.

More than forty projects are described briefly on this page. More than thirty of these are linked to more extensive descriptions (the boxes that are connected directly to "Projects" in the map). The page describing the requirements for analytical tools to support Operations Other Than War (OOTW) provides the link to several other pages, which provide a partial description of the actual project results.
